“Through dealing with more than three years of sexual abuse by a person whom I should have been able to trust, I learned how to hold in my emotions, mask my pain, and present a positive outlook to the world that indicated that life was good. The damaging approach to managing my reactions and having my voice silenced as a child took up residence in my mind as I dragged myself into adulthood”.
